Because of the Son

It is because of thy Son
that thou hast been thus
merciful unto me,
therefore I will
cry unto thee
in all mine afflictions,
for in thee is my joy;
for thou hast
turned thy judgments
away from me,
because of thy Son.

The joy of Christ

The Lord
for them.

And he also
gave them
that they
should suffer
no manner
of afflictions,
save it were
swallowed up
in the joy of Christ.

In unto Christ

O Lord,
wilt thou
grant unto us
that we may
have success
in bringing them
again unto thee
in Christ.

Comfort in Christ

O Lord, my heart is
exceedingly sorrowful;
wilt thou comfort
my soul in Christ.

O Lord, wilt thou
comfort my soul, and
give unto me success, and
also my fellow laborers
who are with me.

Yea, wilt thou comfort
their souls in Christ.

I know

Behold, I say unto you,
I know there is a God,
and also that Christ shall come.

And now what evidence have ye
that there is no God,
or that Christ cometh not?

I say unto you that
ye have none,
save it be
your word only.

But, behold,
I have all things
as a testimony
that these things
are true;
and ye also
have all things
as a testimony
unto you that
they are true.

Joy because of Christ

And thus we see
the great reason
of sorrow, and also
of rejoicing—
sorrow because of
death and
among men,
and joy
because of
the light of
unto life.

Firm in the faith of Christ

And they were also
distinguished for their
zeal towards God,
and also towards men;
for they were perfectly
honest and upright
in all things;
and they were firm
in the faith of Christ,
even unto the end.

And they never did
look upon death
with any degree of terror,
for their hope and
views of Christ
and the resurrection;
death was swallowed up to them
by the victory of Christ over it.

And thus they were
a zealous and
beloved people,
a highly favored
people of the Lord.

Through the Son

Be washed bright
through the blood of
the Son of our great God,
which shall be shed
for the atonement of our sins.

The plan of redemption

And Aaron did
expound unto him
the scriptures
and also the plan
of redemption,
which was prepared
from the foundation
of the world,
through Christ,
for all whosoever
would believe
on his name.

And since man had fallen
he could not merit
anything of himself;
but the sufferings
and death of Christ
atone for their sins,
through faith
and repentance,
and so forth;
and that he breaketh
the bands of death,
that the grave
shall have no victory,
and that the sting of death
should be swallowed up
in the hopes of glory.

Through the death and sufferings of Christ

Now Aaron said unto him:
Believest thou that
the Son of God shall come
to redeem mankind from their sins?

And Aaron began to
open the scriptures unto them
concerning the coming of Christ,
and also concerning
the resurrection of the dead,
and that there could be no
redemption for mankind
save it were through
the death and sufferings of Christ,
and the atonement of his blood.

Blessed Jesus

O blessed Jesus,
who has saved me
from an awful hell!

O blessed God,
have mercy
on this people!

He shall redeem

Blessed be
the name of God,
and blessed art thou.

For as sure as
thou livest,
I have seen
my Redeemer;
and he shall
come forth,
and be born
of a woman,
and he shall
redeem all mankind
who believe
on his name.

Redemption through Christ

He expounded unto them
the plan of redemption,
which was prepared
from the foundation
of the world;
and he also
made known unto them
concerning the coming of Christ.

The coming of the Son of God

Now those priests
who did go forth
among the people
did preach holding forth
the coming of the Son of God,
his sufferings and death, and also
the resurrection of the dead.

And many of the people
did inquire concerning
the place where
the Son of God
should come;
and they were taught
that he would
appear unto them
after his resurrection;
and this
the people did hear
with great joy and gladness.

Healing through Christ

Believest thou
in the power of Christ
unto salvation?

Yea, I believe
all the words
that thou hast taught.

If thou believest
in the redemption
of Christ
thou canst be healed.

Yea, I believe
according to thy words.

O Lord our God,
have mercy on this man,
and heal him
according to his faith
which is in Christ.

Power in Christ

The Lord
had granted
unto them power,
according to
their faith
which was in Christ.

Faith in Christ

O Lord,
give us strength
according to our faith
which is in Christ.

Look on the Son of God

Now these ordinances
were given after this manner,
that thereby the people
might look forward
on the Son of God;
and this that they might
look forward to him
for a remission of their sins,
that they might enter
into the rest of the Lord

After the order of the Son

Thus this holy calling
being prepared from
the foundation
of the world
for such as would not
harden their hearts,
being in and through
the atonement of
the Only Begotten Son.

This high priesthood
being after
the order of his Son,
which order was from
the foundation
of the world;
Now they were ordained
after this manner,
after the order of the Son,
the Only Begotten
of the Father,
who is without
beginning of days
or end of years,
who is full of grace,
equity, and truth.

they were called
after this holy order,
and were sanctified,
and their garments
were washed white
through the blood
of the Lamb.

Through the Only Begotten

God did call on men,
in the name of his Son,
(this being the plan
of redemption
which was laid)

If ye will repent, and
harden not your hearts,
then will I have
mercy upon you,
through mine
Only Begotten Son;

Therefore, whosoever repenteth,
and hardeneth not his heart,
he shall have claim on mercy
through mine Only Begotten Son,
unto a remission of his sins;
and these shall enter into my rest.


Now, there is a death
which is called
a temporal death;
and the death of Christ
shall loose the bands
of this temporal death,
that all shall be raised
from this temporal death.

The spirit and the body
shall be reunited again
in its perfect form;
both limb and joint
shall be restored
to its proper frame,
even as we now are
at this time;
and we shall be brought
to stand before God,
knowing even
as we know now,
and have a
bright recollection
of all our guilt.

Now, this restoration
shall come to all,
both old and young,
both bond and free,
both male and female,
both the wicked
and the righteous;
and even
there shall not so much as
a hair of their heads be lost;
but every thing shall be
restored to its perfect frame,
as it is now, or in the body,
and shall be brought
and be arraigned
before the bar of
Christ the Son,
and God the Father,
and the Holy Spirit,
which is one Eternal God,
to be judged
according to their works,
whether they be good
or whether they be evil.

The Son of God

Who is he that shall come?

Is it the Son of God?


Shall he save his people in their sins?

I say unto you he shall not,
for it is impossible
for him to deny his word.

And I say unto you again that
he cannot save them in their sins;
for I cannot deny his word,
and he hath said that
no unclean thing can inherit
the kingdom of heaven;
therefore, how can ye be saved,
except ye inherit the kingdom of heaven?

Therefore, ye cannot be saved in your sins.

Is the Son of God the very Eternal Father?

Yea, he is the very Eternal Father
of heaven and of earth,
and all things which in them are;
he is the beginning and the end,
the first and the last;
And he shall come into the world
to redeem his people;
and he shall take upon him
the transgressions of those
who believe on his name;
and these are they
that shall have eternal life,
and salvation cometh to none else.

He cometh

Not many days hence
the Son of God shall
come in his glory;
and his glory shall be
the glory of
the Only Begotten
of the Father,
full of grace, equity,
and truth,
full of patience, mercy,
and long-suffering,
quick to hear
the cries of his people
and to answer their prayers.

And behold,
he cometh to redeem
those who will be
baptized unto repentance,
through faith on his name.

prepare ye
the way of the Lord,
for the time is at hand
that all men shall
reap a reward
of their works,
according to that
which they have been—
if they have been righteous
they shall reap
the salvation of their souls,
according to the power
and deliverance
of Jesus Christ.

Faith on the Lamb

Now I say unto you
that ye must repent,
and be born again;
for the Spirit saith
if ye are not born again
ye cannot inherit
the kingdom of heaven;
therefore come
and be baptized
unto repentance,
that ye may be
washed from your sins,
that ye may have
faith on the Lamb of God,
who taketh away
the sins of the world,
who is mighty to save
and to cleanse
from all unrighteousness.

The mercy of the Son

the kingdom
of heaven
is at hand, and
the Son of God
cometh upon
the face of the earth.

And behold,
he shall be born
of Mary,
she being a virgin,
a precious and
chosen vessel,
who shall
be overshadowed
and conceive by
the power of
the Holy Ghost,
and bring forth a son,
yea, even the Son of God.

And he shall go forth,
suffering pains
and afflictions
and temptations
of every kind;
and this that
the word
might be fulfilled
which saith
he will take
upon him
the pains and
the sicknesses
of his people.

And he will
take upon him death,
that he may loose
the bands of death
which bind
his people;
and he will
take upon him
their infirmities,
that his bowels
may be filled
with mercy,
according to
the flesh,
that he may know
according to
the flesh
how to succor
his people
according to
their infirmities.

Now the Spirit
knoweth all things;
the Son of God
according to
the flesh
that he might
take upon him
the sins of
his people,
that he might
blot out
their transgressions
according to
the power
of his deliverance;
and now behold,
this is the testimony
which is in me.

One thing

there is one thing
which is of
more importance
than they all—
for behold,
the time is
not far distant
that the Redeemer liveth
and cometh
among his people.

Declare Christ

Declare the word of God
according to the testimony
of Jesus Christ,
the Son of God,
who should come
to redeem his people
from their sins.

Can ye withstand

And now
I say unto you,
can ye withstand
these sayings;
yea, can ye
lay aside these things,
and trample
the Holy One
under your feet?
